With just over a minute left to play, freshman guard Jared McCain knifed through the defense and snuck in a layup, bringing Duke back within one and firing up the home crowd.

The Blue Devils hit the gridiron one final time this year for a Birmingham Bowl battle with Troy. Ahead of today’s noon kickoff, read up on what The Chronicle’s beat writers forecast for the finale of an eventful season:
